(p.238) Conclusion
Reading Masques

Lauren Shohet (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Not only throughout the seventeenth century but well beyond it, masques participated in an evolving, transhistorically collaborative tradition. Late eighteenth‐century masques repurpose early Jacobean texts; Shakespearian adaptations develop the plays' masque elements to carry early drama forward in the popular repertoire; parodies use the masque form to sponsor dynamic cultural work. The conclusion presents relationships between the 1774 A New Masque Called The Druids and Jonson's 1606 Hymenaei, as well as Tempests by Shakespeare, Davenant, and Thomas Duffett.

Keywords:   masque, Restoration, adaptation, theatrical repertoire, Ben Jonson, William Shakespeare, William Davenant, Thomas Duffett, Hymenaei, The Tempest, The Mock Tempest Or the Enchanted Castle, A New Masque Called the Druids
